Our Turmeric .is specifically designed for use in teas and steeps because it is cut rather than powdered, and therefore can be filtered out at the end of the steep without leaving a powdery residue in the cup. Organic turmeric can be added to any tea or coffee and adds a robust earthy quality that is unique to turmeric.
Turmeric medical uses have long since been recognized for their ability as an anti-inflammatory agent. Turmeric is used for arthritis, heartburn (dyspepsia), joint pain, stomach pain, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, bypass surgery, hemorrhage, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomach bloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver problems, Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, stomach ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gallbladder disorders, high cholesterol, a skin condition called lichen planus, skin inflammation from radiation treatment, and fatigue.
It is also used for headaches, bronchitis, colds, lung infections, fibromyalgia, leprosy, fever, menstrual problems, itchy skin, recovery after surgery, and cancers. Other uses include depression, Alzheimer's disease, swelling in the middle layer of the eye (anterior uveitis), diabetes, water retention, worms, an autoimmune disease called systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), tuberculosis, urinary bladder inflammation, and kidney problems.
Some people apply turmeric to the skin for pain, ringworm, sprains and swellings, bruising, leech bites, eye infections, acne, inflammatory skin conditions and skin sores, soreness inside of the mouth, infected wounds, and gum disease.
Boil 1 teaspoon of organic cut turmeric in cup for maximum effectiveness. This is the ideal ratio for creating topical preparations. For internal consumption, reduce the amount to 1 teaspoon, and add other components such as mint, ginger, o cinnamon to mollify the taste. Turmeric can be pretty strong for those not used to it. Please increase or decrease the amount of the product used per cup according to your taste. Turmeric may be too strong for some people, especially children.
